While we are all aware of the limitations of the statistics, it is still an interesting read:

Hey guys I’ve posed this question in another section, and due to my newbie status I believe it was the wrong section (hardware compatibility). Me question regarding the backblaze data and best rated drives (best to worst) is as follows:

I was initially looking into buying some WD red’s for a Synology’s RS8xx (which is a whole other issue with the recently release and old chip). I’ve consistently seen the Seagate Ironwolf being talked about. I then started to look into the Ironwolf drives and now keep hearing about the HGST drives. I’ve read the articles from backblaze, but not really on interpreting how each of the manufacturers compare to each other with failures over a 5 year period (or some other meaningful length). When comparing the drive days aren’t close to compare each one of them; therefore just looking for an overall opinion or conclusion of their data of which NAS HD is the least likely to have drive errors.
